Spec Ops: The Line
on Sunday, February 10, 2013
In this supplemental episode, Roland takes a closer look at Spec Ops: The Line, and analyzes the positive attention it's been getting from game writers. Does The Line's story make up for its bad gameplay? Let's find out!
This video contains spoilers for Spec Ops: The Line, as well as Call of Duty: Black Ops (but that game is old, so you should have played it already!).
Cold Fear (2005)
Just in time for Halloween (if you're in the continental US, and watching literally in the next few hours), Roland takes a sidelong look at Cold Fear, another Resident Evil ripoff in the vein of Blue Stinger, Dino Crisis, or Deep Fear (two of which are exactly the same game as this), and realizes his irrational hatred of Ubisoft was pretty rational after all.Marathon: a 20th anniversary retrospective

It's Roland's third annual Best and Worst of Gaming video, with an idiosyncratic award naming convention lifted from Penny Arcade (just like Yahtzee did).Reservoir Dogs: The Game
The video game adaptation of Quentin Tarantino's debut film... is one of "those" games. It sucks (goddamn, does it suck), but Roland just can't help but like it.MechWarrior Retrospective, Part 5: MechWarrior 3 (1999)

Roland looks at the game that started the tactical shooter trend. It didn't exactly popularize it; that honor lies with Rainbow Six, but Spec Ops did come out first. What, you might ask, does the 1998 Spec Ops game have to do with the 2012 Spec Ops game? Nothing. Nothing at all.
